Microfluidics is a multidisciplinary technology that deals with the science of building microminiaturized devices with channels for the containment and flow of fluids. At least one or more of these channels will have a dimension less than 1 mm. Compact, simple, and inexpensive microfluidic devices and platforms are offering new opportunities for DOE researchers to gain fresh insights to complex scientific challenges in the fields of engineering, physics, chemistry, genomics, biochemistry, biofuels, nanotechnology, biotechnology, medical diagnostics, and homeland security.
